Now that the new members of our editorial board have joined—and are even working on a cite check as we speak—we would like to welcome all of our new members, as well as the additions to our Executive Managing Board.
This year’s Board is made up of a great group of people and we all look forward to working together over the next year to bring VJCL into the spotlight and get the Journal running smoothly and cohesively.
Take a look at this year’s masthead to get a look at all of the great talent we’ll be working with:
VJCL’s 2013 Symposium is taking place this Wednesday at the University of Virginia School of Law. This year’s symposium is focused on lineup policies and procedures in the state of Virginia. We hope the day’s session will be a useful opportunity for practitioners to make concrete changes to improve the criminal justice system in our own state, and can thereby provide a model for other states investigating their own lineup procedures. See the official announcement for more details and we hope to see you there.
VJCL is proud to announce that it has a new Executive Managing Board. We are excited to get to work with the Journal and already have a few great updates to provide before the end of the semester. Keep an eye out for future posts announcing the new Board and our new 1L members.
